Steps for adding cheese, roast beef, caramelized onions, and rolling Caramelized Onion Roast Beef Rolls

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside.

Caramelized Onions

  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt butter.
  • Add onions and sugar and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions begin to soften and brown (about 5 minutes).
  • Add salt and pepper and reduce heat to medium.
  • Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until onions are soft and caramelized (10 to 15 more minutes).
  • Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.

Roast Beef Rolls

  • Remove the crescent rolls from the cans. On a lightly floured surface, unroll the crescent dough and combine into one large rectangle. Pinch together the seams.
  • Top with provolone cheese, roast beef, and caramelized onions.
  • Roll up tightly starting on the long edge.
  • Using a very sharp knife, cut the log into 12 rolls. Place them into the prepared baking dish.
  • Bake for 43-45 minutes, or until the dough is golden brown.
